This world-first, object-rich exhibition reveals the past, present and future of how cancer is prevented, detected and treated.
With over 100 objects and numerous personal accounts, the exhibition brings to life the stories of people affected by cancer, together with those who study and treat it, revealing how researchers, clinicians, policymakers and patients are fuelling progress in a powerful expression of shared hope.
Among the 125 objects and 30 personal stories included in the exhibition is an incredible object, the first dinosaur bone tumour to be identified, on display in the UK for the very first time. The history of cancer treatment is also explored, with visitors able to see the Radium teletherapy apparatus used at London’s Westminster Hospital in the 1930s by Ernest and Frank Carling. On display for the first time in 60 years, it was used as part of the first alternative treatment to surgery that could visibly shrink and treat tumours.
From busting myths about the causes of cancer and revealing how the disease isn’t unique to humans, to exploring how the latest cancer science, early detection technologies and immunotherapies are advancing cancer care today, Cancer Revolution: Science, innovation and hope shows the incredible progress we have made in understanding this disease and highlights the important challenges that are still to be solved.
